Yiddish: The Living Language of the Jewish People

By Rokhl Kafrissen

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Spring 2008

If we are truly interested in strengthening Jewish life and culture, we would do well to understand the unique stature of Yiddish as a language of the Jewish People. We should think twice before writing off millions of Jews, and the history of millions more, as irrelevant.
